Addicted to EagleCam

I admit it, I'm addicted to watching a pair of Bald Eagles raising their young at the Minnesota DNR EagleCam. Watch the EagleCam at http://www.webcams.dnr.state.mn.us/eagle/.

A video about the Eagle Cam. 

2016 is the fourth year of the EagleCam. From the DNR, "This is the fourth year DNR’s Nongame program has streamed live video from a bald eagle nest. The pair, which has used this spot for many years, has started to visit the nest after a few months absence. Last year the first egg was laid on the 19th or 20th of January, with all three being laid by the 25th of January. Eagles typically incubate their eggs for about 35 days. Although the nest has at times looked chilly, even covered in a blanket of snow for a while, Bald Eagles in Minnesota have adapted to laying and caring for eggs in these conditions. The male and female take turns keeping their eggs warm and dry in a deep pocket in the middle of the nest. Please check back often to see how the nest is doing, observe interesting behaviors such as parents switching off incubation duties, feeding, and protecting the eggs from the elements."
